Whether you’re a busy mom or an office professional, it’s always good to have multi-tasking products. I’ve got the Best Multi-Tasking Beauty Products to share with you today. These are my picks for products that work twice as hard as the rest to help you look your best.
DermOrganic Leave-In Shine Therapy
DermOrganic Leave-In Shine Therapy ($12.69, amazon.com) is really a do it all. It is a heat protectant, speeds up blow dry time, adds softness and shine, eliminates frizz and is ideal for use with a flat iron. I use it after I’ve washed my hair, before I blow dry, to protect my hair.
Coconut oil isn’t just for cooking! In addition for being great as a hair mask for your hair, you can also use it as a body moisturizer. You can use a tiny bit as a shine serum in the hair, too.
Batiste Dry Shampoo
Batiste Dry Shampoo ($8.08, amazon.com) is your BFF if you’re a busy lady. In addition to soaking up excess oils, it makes your hair smell good. It also adds volume to your roots. If you’ve got fine hair like I do, that extra volume is very welcome!
bareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener
In addition to providing a brightening effect, bareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener ($18.95, amazon.com) also works as a concealer. You could use it to highlight the cheeks in a pinch too. Available in 4 shades – 1 (fair/pink), 2 (light/yellow), 3 (tan/neutral), 4 (deep/golden). I wear shade 1 and it does a great job hiding my dark circles.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 20
This multi-tasking product has optical blurring pigments to even out the skintone, minimize pores, lines, wrinkles and redness. Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 20 ($34, sephora.com) has anti-aging ingredients to nourish the skin. It has SPF 20 to shield and prevent sun damage. It primes the skin and hydrates it. Available in 3 shades – Light, Medium and Dark. So you can use this as a primer or light coverage complexion corrector. I like to wear this on its own with a setting powder.
NARS the Multiple
If ever there was a multi-use product, NARS the Multiple ($39, amazon.com) is it. Available in a wide range of shades they can be used to hghlight, contour, or blush the cheeks. They can give you color on your lips and eyes too. Riviera, Portofino, and Malibu in particular are great shades.
Cover FX CC Cream
Cover FX CC Cream ($45, dermstore.com) happens to be my favorite CC Cream. It’s vegan, SPF 30, has a ton of anti-aging benefits on a time-release to nourish the skin, Vitamin C, can be full coverage or sheered out as needed and comes in a very wide shade range for the lightest and deepest skintones. I wear this with just a setting powder on my t-zone and I’m good to go. I wear shade N Light.
Silk Naturals HD Cream Foundation
I love Silk Naturals HD Cream Foundation ($11.99, silknaturals.com) because it’s a cream foundation that can be worn as a foundation or used as concealer! It’s available in 16 shades (plus a white). I wear shade N10. It’s vegan. It somehow manages to meld with your skin. If you’re using it as a concealer it’s easy to pop it on top of whatever foundation you’re wearing and blend it out. It doesn’t crease.
Silk Naturals Ultimate Luxury Treatment Powder
Translucent setting powders are a must! In addition to setting your makeup, Silk Naturals Ultimate Luxury Treatment Powder ($16.99, amazon.com) is filled with Silk, Pearls, Roses and Vitamin C, making it extremely nourishing to the skin. It can be used to thicken your lashes, like a lash primer if you apply it with a spoolie between mascara coats. It can be used to tone down eyeshadow, bronzer or blush if you’ve applied a bit too much. It can be used to help set your lipstick and mattify it, extending the wear time. And of course, to set your foundation, extend wear time, reduce shine and blur imperfections.
NYX Wonder Pencil
Available in 3 shades, NYX Wonder Pencil ($7.85, amazon.com) can be used to line your waterline, conceal blemishes and as a reverse lipliner around your lips. It can also be used to clean up around your brows and as a matte highlight shade.
BECCA The One Perfecting Brush
BECCA The One Perfecting Brush ($49, amazon.com) can be used with liquids, creams, powders and anything in between. It’s an excellent brush that will speed up your makeup application because you can apply your foundation, blush, contour and then highlighter, wiping the brush off on a towel in between.
